I luckily happened upon this site and it's amazing! While I'm not an active cook, I'm somewhat almost obsessively drawn to the Food Network and related shows! My mother was from Belgium and an absolutely amazing cook - our plates would also look like works of art besides them looking so utterly delicious. Her cookies were exact replicas of one another! Perhaps her expertise made me feel that anything I would try would look so much worse and taste ... so much worse.
In any event, here I am drawn again into a cooking site which I believe I'm going to love.
I initially happened upon the site as I had recovered my Mom's Grand Diplome cooking course set and I was seeking out their value. I'm not certain whether I actually will sell them after reading the comments about these sets. Who knows, maybe I can be a star in my own home kitchen and actually begin to like to cook!
So, thanks for your site and that's my story! Lin
